First promotional video : The
On a Greek island of impressive neoclassical beauty, I lived and wrote
the concept of the new ATARAXIAs album CENTAUREA.
CENTAUREA is an island beyond the columns of time, still immersed in
a golden age, it is a new Mediterranean Avalon whose name is a hundred
times brighter than gold and that can only be accessed by dreaming and
from which one leaves just sleeping.
Crossing the dimensional waters that lead to this magical circle, always
immersed in the gold of the light of twilight and the flaming magenta
of the dawn, we reach a dimension in which the principles of the Sacred
Feminine and Masculine are embodied by heroes and maidens, priestesses
and bards. The qualities of Courage, Audacity, Hospitality, Trust, Grace,
intense spiritual values and the earthly representation of Beauty become
flesh and accompany us while listening to the songs.
We participate in nocturnal rituals, dances at dawn, races across prairies
and woads, flights overlooking the sea, celebrations of the primeval
Sun, we meet wolves and Goddesses, we speak lunar alphabets, we cross
woods of wild loves, enchanted bays where sweet scents are released,
we sail wild blues and listen to the myths of the Oak. The beings who
animate these places live destinies on a strand of splendor.
This album, our twenty-nineth, is
part of a trilogy which began with Pomegranate, a hymn to
the elemental spirits, and which will end with a work inspired by the
Elysian Fields passing through the Golden Age brought to light by "CENTAUREA".
The splendid layouts (each album format has its own imaginative history,
therefore the vinyl artbook contained in the limited box and the CD
graphics are different from each other, unique and original) are released
by Nicolas Ramain.
The intro of the CD will see the uillean pipes played by Gregorio Bellodi
for the very first time and, once again, in three songs we will find
Totem Bara on the cello.
The album will be preceded by four singles with three related videos
portraying places and rituals of CENTAUREA.
The entire work is a kaleidoscope of varied beauty in which the arts
blend and accompany us.
